By Chine Labbé PARIS (Reuters) - Seven people went on trial in Paris on Monday accused of traveling to Syria to train as militant fighters, among them the brother of one of the militants who killed 130 people in the French capital last November. The seven, aged from 24 to 27, face up to 10 years in jail if found guilty of taking part in an Islamist recruitment network and receiving training in Syria from Islamic State. The accused, friends from eastern France, were part of a larger number who in December 2013 traveled to Syria, where two of them died.
The deal, which one analyst called "very rich" for Verizon workers, could be a prelude to the company exiting the wireline telecommunications business, transforming into a wireless internet business. Verizon, the No. 1 U.S. wireless provider, and the Communications Workers of America (CWA) had reached a tentative deal on Friday. The CWA said Verizon agreed to provide a 10.9 percent raise over four years while Verizon put the increase at 10.5 percent.
